3.   FormationRegistered Cossacks. Transformation of the Ukrainian Cossacks essential factor in publicLife in Ukraine and complication of relations with the Crimean Khanate and OttomanEmpire through clashes with the Cossacks indication aspirations of the Lithuanian and Polishauthorities to establish control over them.

1524 was first made an attempt to attractCossacks on the civil service. Polish King and Grand Duke of Lithuania Sigismund I instructed naverbuvaty 2.1 thousand Cossacks to protectSouthern border. However, due to lack of funds this project is done.

Commonwealth Authorities stepped up efforts tosubordination of the Cossacks. 1572 on behalf of the King ZygmuntAugustus II was taken to the civil service and entered into a speciallist-"register" 300 Cossacks. Registered Cossacks, as theirwere called, received a special group rights and privileges. In particular,own administrative power and the Cossack proceedings. This contributed to the isolationCossacks from other segments of the population and its transformation into a new social status.

Further measures as recognition of Ukrainian Cossacksmade a separate state of King Stefan Batory. He agreed to take onPublic Service 500 Cossacks, defining the special "Resolution of nyzovtsiv"their rights and responsibilities.

 

Documents tell.

With the "Regulation on nyzovtsiv" approvedKing Stefan Batory September 16, 1578

... Before the same lord mayor must passoath of allegiance to him and be obedient ... ie have no land to fightHairs not do it no harm and devastation, but if someone like it did, hadwould hamuvaty, seize and beat the enemy as our crown. Just havestick to Belgorod, Ochakov, Tyahyni, their villages and grasslands to there shkodno not do, nor do pozvolyaly Crimean king, his lands,people ulus .. but have to give us to know about the king's men, at allwill act in accordance with our orders.
